HPS Monthly National Influenza Report - week ending 12 March 2017 16 Mar 2017
  • This report provides an update on seasonal respiratory pathogen activity for the week ending 12 March 2017. For this season, we will provide detailed influenza update reports on a monthly basis with bulletin style weekly updates in the weeks in between.
  • This report contains summary epidemiological information on influenza-like illness (ILI) and acute respiratory illness (ARI) activity, its severity and impact in the community and secondary care settings, and vaccine uptake estimates.
  • In Scotland, clinical influenza activity in primary care is stable and remains low and clinical activity in secondary care is decreasing. Virological influenza activity suggests that community circulation of influenza may also be decreasing.
  • The levels of parainfluenza reported through the non sentinel scheme were slightly higher than expected at this time of the year. All other respiratory pathogens were within seasonal expectations.
